Crispino Iceberg Lettuce
I only write reviews when I really like something or hate it. I had great success growing this Crispino Iceberg lettuce from David's Garden Seeds.
A long time ago I tried growing "Great Lakes" head lettuce without much luck. In order to get good results, the weather had to be just right; it did not like hot weather. I managed to get some delicious heads every 2-3 years but it was a waste of garden space so I gave up on it..
I planted 12 heads of this Crispino Iceberg lettuce this summer, 3 seeds per spot. I got almost 100% germination and thinned down to one head per spot. This lettuce started developing heads just as my weather got hot. Uh oh! In spite of the 90° temps I got 10 nice big juicy heads out of 12 planted. Fresh head lettuce is delicious, way better than the grocery store offering. I am VERY pleased with the harvest and taste and I just sowed seeds to try a fall crop. This variety will be a regular item in my garden.

nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
